Edit (2019-11-12): rosserial has long since been released for Kinetic (and Melodic). If possible try to use apt to install it (but make sure to be using a supported OS+platform combination (ie: amd64, arm64 or armhf with Debian or Ubuntu), check the status pages):

sudo apt install ros-$ROS_DISTRO-rosserial

(replace $ROS_DISTRO with your version of ROS, ie: kinetic or melodic)

Original answer: it will be eventually on the repositories so you can install it using apt-get install according to:

In any case you can download the code to any of your catkin workspaces and build it:

 mkdir -p rosserial_ws/src 
 cd rosserial_ws/src  
 git pull
 cd ..

I am explaing what i did and this worked for me.

Follow the procedures given in the tutorial Arduino IDE setup upto the point where you gitclone it from gitclone repository.Then instead of catkin_make type in the following command catkin_make -DCATKIN_WHITELIST_PACKAGES=rosserial followed by catkin_make install-DCATKIN_WHITELIST_PACKAGES=rosserial.Now go to your workspace/src/rosserial where you will find 11 packages including rosserial.Now repeat the last two commands that you typed in for all of these packages like catkin_make -DCATKIN_WHITELIST_PACKAGES=rosserial_arduino and catkin_make install-DCATKIN_WHITELIST_PACKAGES=rosserial_arduino so on till catkin_make install-DCATKIN_WHITELIST_PACKAGES=rosserial_xbee.Now follow the tutorial from the point where you go to arduino sketchbook cd <sketchbook>/librariestill the end.
